Don't Think Your Pet Can Sit Still For A Photo Shoot? 4 Things You Should Know Before You Book

Worried that your dog will never sit still long enough to have professional pet photos taken? I get it. This is a top client concern.

Every time you go to take a photo of your dog or cat, they move, don't they? One second they are looking their utmost cutest, their little eyes brimming with love and adorableness so you reach for you camera. You raise it up high, tap the phone to focus and just as you hover your finger over the shutter.... BAM! They move!

Sound familiar?
